Neverwinter Disables Free Gift Promotion Temporarily

dw_capstone_08

Perfect World Entertainment has temporarily halted an email promotion after players began using it in an unexpected manner. As part of the event, Neverwinter distributed a single code that granted one code with a chance to win random goods including elemental companions.

Players soon realized that the items were not account bound, allowing them to set up new accounts and repeatedly use the code to get more items from the list.

In addition to re-selling the item, we saw several instances where players created additional Arc accounts to continuously redeem the code. With the entire situation in mind, our team decided to disable the codes.

PWE is looking at options to replace/revive the program.
